Comment #: CA4921
Rating:9.9
Comments:
I am very critical of judges, generally speaking, but Judge Waggoner is very rare for his even-handed judicial temperament and his careful study of the law (something that I can't say about the other hacks on the bench up there). Judge Waggoner is fair to both sides, and you can't depend on any favoritism from him. He is truly "Solomon on the Bench" -- although he would never order the parties to cut a baby in half. Judge Waggoner is a good judge and a good person.

This "judge" is 51/50. He is unstable, biased, rude, extremely volatile, angry, and lacks the proper temperament for the position that he holds.
